Small but powerful
This lens is tiny. For a super-wide angle lens, it is really tiny. This
lens weighs in at just 145g and fits in the palm of your hand yet, has a
full-frame 100° angle of view which makes it perfect for architecture
and landscape photography. Because of the size of this lens it matches
up seamlessly with the Sony FE system.
Stunning Image Quality
The lens has been built from 9 lens elements in 8 groups. These are
comprised of Samyang’s high-quality and speciality glass elements that
include 3 Aspherical, 2 High Refractive and 3 Extra Low Dispersion
elements. These combined results in edge-to-edge sharpness and quality
in the images that you take.
Quick and Reliable Autofocus
Autofocus is a relatively recent addition to Samyang lenses as they used
to be exclusively manual focus lenses. However, you wouldn’t be able to
tell when using this lens. The autofocus is driver by a linear STM motor
that delivered impressively fast, reliable and accurate autofocus.
